Before Countless British soldiers died in the trenches of Belgium in World War I, they managed to pass on to the Belgians a taste for wonderful British ale. Shortly afterward, in the 1920s, the Belgians began making pale ale themselves-with the intriguing addition of a spicy, fruity, almost perfumed aroma that comes not from spices but a special Belgian yeast. This one from the tiny one man brewery Achilles is a classic Belgian Pale Ale, for everyday drinking.
